Short Bio

 

Adiel Teixeira de Almeida is Full Professor of management engineering at Universidade Federal de Pernambuco and founding coordinator of the CDSID (Center for Decision Systems and Information Development). Before his current position, he worked in business organizations as engineer and manager, including project manager and program manager of R&D projects. He holds a PhD in management engineering from The University of Birmingham, UK. He has a research fellowship Grantee for Productivity in Research from the Brazilian NRC (CNPq), since 1996. His main interests are in decision-making related to multiple objectives and group decision problems, which includes methodological issues and applications. He has received in 2017 the INFORMS GDN Section Award. He serves on the editorial board of scholarly journals, such as: Group Decision and Negotiation (Management Science Departmental co-editor), IMA Journal of Management Mathematics, International Journal of Decision Support System Technology, EURO Journal on Decision Processes, and Journal of Aerospace Technology and Management. He authored or co-author over 125 scientific papers in reviewed journals related to a variety of topics such as: Operational Research, Group Decision, Decision Systems, MCDM/A (Multicriteria Decision Making and Aid), Risk, Reliability, Maintenance, Safety, Quality, and Water Resources. He has been working as a consultant and with R&D projects for private and public organizations, where he has applied decision models in many contexts, such as: risk analysis, reliability and maintenance, project portfolio, R&D project portfolio, project management, strategic modeling, outsourcing, information systems, supply chain, and water management. Also, he has been an active member of the main societies related to Operational Research, Group Decision, MCDM/A, Risk, Reliability and Maintenance topics. He is an Associate Research Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (FIMA). Currently, he serves the Council of the Group Decision and Negotiation Section of INFORMS (as Vice-President).
